"Shoe Inspirerd"

Hello Blog friends, hope you are all well.
Thank you for calling in today, I really like that you take time to visit and leave all your lovely comments.  I read each and every one.
Sunday past I reached the heady heights of having 100 followers.  Never thought for one minute that I would ever get that many.  I did say I would put the names of all the followers who commented this week into a pot and John would draw out the winner.   Some commented almost every day, you had multiple chances. The name John drew out was Pam (Pamscrafts)   Pam if you forward your address to me at I will post your parcel out on Monday.
I was with a friend for coffee this morning.  I put on a pair of shoes I have not had on in ages.  When I look down at my feet I thought Mmmm!!! I see  "a card"
So folks here are the shoes

Now here is the card I madeNo reason for the card other than the shoes inspired me.

Base card approx 5x5
Navy card
Grey card
Flowers cut using a Cheery Lynn Die
Butterfly a SB Die

  8. Hi Patricia,
    you sound just like me. I get a lot of my inspiration from things I see about the such colours how they match together on my duvet and when ever I am out and about. I look at things and think yes that would look good on a card. Sometimes Tony is calling me and I don't here him as my head is deep in thoughts of what I have seen, and want to create from it.
    Congrats to Pam on her win.
    Your shoes inspired card is very lovely. Fabulous flowers
    to adorn it too.

  23. Hi Patricia
    thought I had arrived at the wrong blog when I saw the shoes lol!
    Fab card, simple elegance.
    Dentist was not a joy yesterday. Had an inlay fitted and mouth was sore. Then had to play taxi and was out most of day and then evening when I just wanted to lie down as I had developed a sore throat and by evening, sniffles. Had tickets for the Hunkydory craft show today so I was going come hell or high water.
    Was there from opening to closing but have suffered for it since being home. May well spend tomorrow in bed!
    Bet you wished you hadn't asked now lol! x

  24. Gorgeous card Patricia. And I love your inspiration shoes. Very elegant.

  27. Hi Patricia, thanks for your lovely comments on my latest card. I see you're looking for a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. Pity I don't live nearer you! But if you go to the SU website at you'll find a "find a demonstrator" box on the top right. If you put in your address or town or village you should get a list of demonstrators in your area. Hope this helps.
